Peat and Diesel drummer Uilly says: "We’re not only delighted to announce our biggest headline shows but excited to have two days of music and fun with you all in the Highlands. We’re overjoyed to have both The View and The Feeling come along and join us for these shows, bands that have been bringing you belters for nearly 20 years. The Highlands has been a very special place for us as a band over the last 5 years and we wanted to come back with a bang, well two bangs!"

Allana from Mikeysline said: "We are absolutely delighted to be one of the nominated charities in what is set to be a SUPERB weekend at the showfield. We are a grass roots charity supporting young people and adults locally with their mental health/emotional distress and heavily rely on community based fundraising to support our services. Also connecting with a large audience like this helps us to #BeeTheChange and challenge the stigma around mental health. Thank you Peat & Diesel!"
